Faith, The Power That Never Fails

Sep 24, 2021 | Faith, Gordon Robertson

Powerful faith

What is God looking for in us? He’s looking for faith. We often think of faith as just a noun, but it’s also a verb—when you act on your faith.

One of the great miracles in the New Testament happened when some people lowered their friend who was paralyzed down through the roof to be with Jesus. And Mark 2:5 records this wonderful phrase: When Jesus saw their faith.



Faith is visible to God. He sees when you believe.

Many times faith is a process. Often on The 700 Club, people hear a word of knowledge and say, “That’s for me; I’m going to take that”—and they have an instant reaction. Their bodies respond immediately.

God … is the one who gives power and strength to his people. –Psalm 68:35

Why? Because God’s power is always on. His healing is always available. The cross is always available to you. As 1 Peter 2:24 says, He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds, you have been healed.

His power is constantly there; it’s not something He turns on and off. And faith accesses that incredible power.

If someone has been healed and then feels a twinge of pain, it’s easy for worry and unbelief to set in. The person may be tempted to think, “Oh no, I’ve lost my healing.” But instead, we should say, “I haven’t lost anything. I haven’t lost God. I haven’t lost Jesus. I haven’t lost His power. I’m going to act on my faith.”

Now, what medical condition are you facing? God’s power is right there for you. It’s always on. His power doesn’t flicker or waver. What you need is to believe, and to rely, and to trust, and to act on your faith. Don’t allow doubt to creep in. So let’s believe, and the Lord will do all the rest.

God bless you.
